Grand Isle, Louisiania - Shrimper Armand Lecavalier donated his 40 foot shrimp boat to the Obama campaign last week making it the tenth boat in a week the Obama campaign has received.
Lecavalier, who is hard of hearing, attended the Obama raly in Louisiana during the Primaries and was struck by the power of the charismatic orator Obama who said "If you want hope for change for a better America then I need your boat."
"Right then and there I knew what I could do for America."
"Not too many Americans can do what I could do. I had a boat and Obama needed it to change America."
"I spoke with my wife Aline and she said it was the right thing to do for the country . . . we made it through a dozen hurricanes, we would make do it it meant a stronger America for our children."
The Obama campaign also reports receiving several hundred coats, bushels and bushels of oats and since the recent visit to Afghanistan several goats as well.
The Democratic candidate for the presidency says "I am encouraged by everyones' show of support so far" and plans to work on his "V" sound.
